Wartime Malta

During the First World War Malta was a vital base of operations and a medical hub which treated wounded soldiers brought here from across the Mediterranean. During the Second World War Malta was besieged for more than two years. More bombs were dropped on the island than on London during the Blitz. In recognition of their bravery and suffering, the people of Malta were awarded the George Cross.
